It was a beautiful long holiday season (despite Covid) and now it’s come to an end (even as its spirit, memories and inspirational uplift lives on). Back to the everyday! Our Sukkah is down and put away, and we’re now focused on making the rest of the semester (until Thanksgiving) as meaningful and memorable as possible, both with in-person and online events and opportunities.
Thanks to all who made our holidays special, from spirited distanced dancers on Simchat Torah to vigorous Sukkah Bike Lulav shakers, those who enjoyed our Rosh Hashanah packages to those who prayed with us here, those who sang the Sukkaleh Song with us or and those who sang it in quarantine, those whom we chatted with over messages, and all the beautiful, delicious, meaningful, warm, memorable holiday experiences we had together and apart this year.
Let’s invest in our Jewish community and ourselves to make this rest of the semester safe, enjoyable, meaningful and connected! Best we can under these limiting circumstances!
As we go forward with the rest of the semester we will be be doing more of the pick-up/deliver to-go (and remote) alongside the in-person events, something that was harder at times for us to juggle during the long Jewish holiday season.
This week’s RSVP form Sep 13-19 – everything during Covid is via RSVP.

Scavenger Hunt at Torah Tuesday Oct 13
This week’s Torah Tuesday will be a scavenger hunt from the comfort (and using the resources) of your own dorm or apartment (or home). It should be a fun and engaging game that will conclude in a nice lesson that is especially relevant now at the end of the holiday season. Message us for the Zoom info.
All events are via RSVP during Covid – current students please check your emails, the whatsapp group or the Covid page on this site for this week’s form.
see our VIRTUAL page for links to join Zoom’s and Whatsapp’s, our daily FB Live, and other ways to connect virtually. Since our closing in March for Covid-Coronavirus we’ve transitioned to a lot of online programming for both students and alumni. As well as Shabbat-To-Go almost all throughout.
See our COVID page for continuously (keep checking back as we update it!) updated information on what services and programs we may (or may not) be able to offer during this unusual semester, and what conditions and specifics would be involved, including RSVP system, outdoor seating, limited group sizes, distancing, masks etc. The goal is to provide as much as we possibly can under these circumstances, in a responsible and safe manner, following the guidelines and recommendations. Thanks to all who have contributed to help purchase equipment and supplies to enable this current temporary transition. And thanks to those alumni, parents, friends and professionals who have helped us develop protocols and guidelines based on local and national and university health policies.
See our shabboshouse.org/Covid page (under the “This Week” tab) for the Sukkot First Days RSVP form and a how it will work this weekend. We’re taking this a few days at a time, reevaluating and taking all things into consideration and planning accordingly. We are limiting our to-go Sukkot meals for those in quarantine, but will get back to more to-go meals as things go on. Stay tuned each week has its own schedule, opportunities and challenges!
SIGNUP FORM for keep-in-touch at Shabbos House.… we send out a weekly email with event updates for that week. If you don’t get our emails (alumni: a couple times a month, student updates weekly) please let us know so we can add you to the email list. Stay in touch, keep in the loop!
More updates soon,
Love, Mendel & Raizy
